    So, I installed Windows 7 64 bit yesterday. It worked seemingly well after install until I rebooted today and all I could see was the background image on my desktop when it loads. So, if I go in under safe move and disable the Nvidia 9100 driver it lets me in, but of course my screen doesn't look right. Everything is huge and looks bad. I have tried to download every driver imaginable from nvidia. I cannot figure out how to resolve this issue. I thought I did well as I ran the Windows 7 program prior to installing and it didn't tell me there were any conflicts and it said Windows 7 would install just fine. Well, now my computer is all messed up and I don't know what to do. Can I add a different video card to get around this? I spoke with HP and they said I should have gotten the upgrade disc from them.... all fine and dandy if I had known that before shelling out $110 to Amazon for the discs from Windows. If anyone can help me, I would really appreciate it. I'm at a total loss right now. :( My virtually new computer is all messed up. :rolleyes:

    Thanks in advance,
    Nichole

    So you've gone into safe mode, uninstalled the video card, downloaded the latest "64 BIT" drivers from nvidia (if you are in fact running Win 7 64 bit) and installed them from there?

    I'd say try older drivers?

    I've tried both new drivers and a few of the older ones. I'm currently operating in normal mode, but everything is out of whack with how it looks. I have the nvidia card disabled. Any idea what drivers might work? I believe I tried their 196, 195 and 191 to no avail....

    Were they 64 bit drivers? I know it sounds silly but 64 bit still isn't fully supported. I might try contacting nvidia as well.

    Yes, I downloaded the 64 bit version.... Should I try the 32 bit instead? Any recommendations? I will try to contact nvidia tomorrow. Thanks!

    Would it be possible to put a new video card in that would be compatible with Windows 7?

    I'm not sure how old the geforce 9100 is but you can try a spare if you have one, shouldn't hurt.
